Detail Description

Only edition of these concise responsa by R. Abraham ha-Levi from Orlah with an accompanying detailed commentary entitled Marpeh le-Enayim by his son-in-lawR. Azriel. The title-page informs that the latter served as av-bet-din in several communities in Poland. There is an approbation from R. Jacob Orenstein, followed by an introdiuction from R. Jacob Baruch, son of the author. The text is comprised of seven responsa, on such unusual subjects (no. 3) as the Bertinoro’s position in Sotah that if a man vows his son to be a nazir the son’s situation after he attains adulthood, also referencing the Tosafot Yom Tov and Rashi. Another responsum (no. 5) deals with whether someone who has been given the death penalty by a beth din is kosher for adus and no. 6 whwter a person prays witrh their heart has fulfilled his obligation or not. All accompanied by the very detailed commentary Marpeh le-Enayim.
